I shouldn’t eat Yorkshire Puddings because ………

004I recently went out for dinner with my niece and her daughters and my mum. I was so hungry that I had a carvery with yorkshire puddings, something I never have, forgetting that they contain milk.  I was ravenous and cleared my plate.

I knew something was wrong when I wanted to drink a litre bottle of water, like there was no tomorrow, plus my stomach began to feel uncomfortable.

As you can see, my hand has swollen up as well, it’s quite horrifying, plus I couldn’t control my body temperature and although the reaction wasn’t as severe as I thought it might be. It really shocked me into thinking, why did I say yes to yorkshire puddings, knowing that I can’t have them and must try to make my own.

I have had to take it easy over the last couple of days so that all the lactose has gone from my system and thankfully my appetite is such that I can enjoy eating food.

When reactions do happen, I tend to drink lots and lots of water and fruit juice to flush out the system.  This works for me, but may not work for everyone.

Any fruit juice is great to replenish any vitamins and salts that are lost with any reaction, however sudden or unexpected.

Please be careful as lactose is in a whole manor of foods, which you would at least expect

  1. Hey Amanda, how are you? Thanks for stopping by Splendid Recipes.

    So you have allergies to lactose? There is a cure for that Amanda. I had, and I say HAD lactose allergies, but know more. Lactose intolerance is due to a lack of good gut flora. Eating more fermented foods will ad that flora back to your gut.

    Also another mineral that helps with digestion and also digestion of lactose is magnesium. I use Trace Minerals from the Great Salt Lakes in Utah (USA). It can be bought on line.

    When I went to doctors they did nothing for the IBS or lactose intolerance. I just had to suffer with it, as well as cut out foods that bothered it. I did my own investigations, and I found the cure.

    I am now able to eat dairy again, and the IBS symptoms are gone.

    I hope this information can help you. (Check out my other web-site http://www.healthnewslibrary.com ).



    • Hi Randy,
      I’m Lactolerant, plus I also have a dairy/soya allergy. I should be able to get Trace Minerals over here in the UK, I’ll have a look. My doctor told me I was better off without having dairy in my diet.

      I like being able to find substitutes and have feta cheese, I’ve also found some goats milk yoghurt that’s delicious with some honey and will use it in ice cream that I will be making during the summer months.

      I did some investigations over here as well, and also found that some E numbers in the ingredients also affect me.

      I’ll look on the website as well, any information regarding lactose is a bonus as I can pass it on to others. Could I also pass on the website as well as I’ve had a couple of referrals.

      Kind Regards
